First snow in Denmark
Thank god it's not the kind that makes my cute shoes all messy or the kind that keeps my dog from wanting to go tinkle.
It's J-DAG Snow! "J-Dag" = Julebryg Dag = Christmas Beer Day...
The day the Christmas beers are officially released in Denmark!
You know Denmark?? The only country on the planet that has a holiday to celebrate the arrival of beer?? The Danes get as excited about the arrival of Julebryg as I used to about the arrival of Pumpkin Spice Lattes at Starbucks!
They are those seasonal things that just warm your heart! :-)
So tonight, at exactly 8:59pm, the taps all across Denmark will begin serving Christmas Beer and in most places, you will be served by the "Nissepiger" which are the "girl Christmas elves"! Mads and I are going out for 2 reasons...1) to of course, have our first Julebryg, but 2) to PEOPLE WATCH! Should be a fun night!
